Sticky sausage & rosemary skewers

  • Total Recipe Time: 30 mins
  • Cooking time 20 mins
  • Makes 12 sausages


  • drizzle of sunflower oil
  • 12 sturdy rosemary sprigs, each about 10cm long
  • 6 rashers streaky bacon
  • 36 cocktail sausages
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup


  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Grease a large baking tray with a little oil.
  • To prepare your skewers, remove most of the leaves from each rosemary sprig, keeping a few leaves at the end. Sharpen the other end to a point by cutting it at an angle. 
  • Stretch the bacon by placing it on a chopping board and running the back of a knife along the length. Cut each piece in half across the middle.
  • Thread 3 sausages onto each skewer, weaving a piece of bacon around them as you do.
  • Arrange the skewers on the baking tray and bake for 20 mins. Turn them, brush with maple syrup and return to the oven for 10 mins more until really sticky.
